with president obama, our country is at a crossroads. we need i think our leaders to hold people accountable and to stick up for working families. the poor and the elderly. they have given enough. we can get more revenue. we just have to have the guts to do it. we don't need our leaders to stand in front of big donors and not have the guts to make the decisions of what's right for america. the folks that have to pay more are the bush era tax cuts. those recipients in my opinion. we can get more out of them. and of course it's all about the loopholes, isn't it? well, how are we going to change tax policy? washington if we can't get anything passed in the senate? the entire lynchpin to the 113th is going to be what is harry reid does with changing the rules for the filibuster. then we can move to get to these tax loopholes that has helped the wealthiest americans in this country. it's all about ideology. what do you believe in? do you believe the lower 80% of americans should actually serve up a little bit more to make this thing right? because we never paid for the wars in iraq and afghanista

'll. >> that's for sure. something we haven't needed in a couple of weeks. actually the umbrellas may actually be needed. we need to see the rain. i think we'll see a little bit during the day tomorrow. but in the next couple of days, could be a lot of rain in the forecast. lying temperatures today, just gorgeous. 57 with abundant sunshine. today was a beautiful day. 59 in fredericksburg, 52 for a high in gaithersburg, 54 in leesburg. just a beautiful afternoon. friday, however, i don't think will be anything near what we saw out there. expect cooler temperatures and rain to begin to make its way in here. i
that to me i'm disappointed that we continue to have more than 60,000 troops in that country. >> bret: charles? >> obama was careful to define the role as merely blunting or decimating al-qaeda. if that is the case the goal was achieved in six months. obviously, the surge that he ordered was meant for something much largeer. the fact is that it's sort of today was acknowledgment that the surge failed. and we're leaving. the question is whether what do you leave behind? the most important element in this decision is that we want to use afghanistan as a base not for afghanistan itself, which doesn't really matter. but for pakistan. it's the northern part of pakistan. waziristan, which is where the new homeland is of terrorist is who would attack the american homeland. i think what the objective would be is to have a small number of bases, small number of soldiers from which you could direct the trone attacks or special forces. remember, in the raid to kill bin laden, launching area was from afghanistan. and if we hadn't had afghanistan as the base from which we could launch, we'd have t
't matter. but president obama does believe that america is a flawed country and it is his duty to correct those flaws. that's why we're not seeing much give in the president's position on government spending. he doesn't want to cut social programs. he doesn't want to reform entitlements. that's clear. when you say hey, mr. president, have you run up nearly $6 trillion in debt in four years, mr. obama doesn't seem to care. he has borrowed more money than every president combined up until bush the younger's first year in office. think about that. think about that. one president borrowing more than 43 presidents combined. next up, after gun control is borrowing even more money. next month, congress will be asked again to raise the debt ceiling. most republicans will oppose that acting for definite spending cuts before more borrowing. does the president care? >> the only viable option here is congress to fulfill -- that congress fulfills its responsibility and ensures that the united states of america pays its bills as it has always paid its bills through the its history. >> bill: just shut u

'm amy goodman with juan gonzalez. >> welcome to all our listeners and viewers from around the country and around the world. president obama is facing criticism for nominating another former wall street executive to become treasury secretary. thursday, obama tapped his own chief of staff jack lew to replace timothy geithner air. lew was an executive at citigroup from 2006 to 2008 at the time of the financial crisis. he served as chief operating officer of citigroup's alternative investments unit -- a group that bet on the housing market to collapse. lew has long pushed for the deregulation of wall street. from 1998 to january 2001 he headed the office of management and budget under president clinton. during that time, clinton signed into law two key laws to deregulate wall street -- the financial services modernization act of 1999 and the commodity futures monitored his asian act of 2000. on thursday, independint senator of vermont bernie sanders criticized the nomination saying -- at a press conference at the white house thursday, president obama praised the record of jack lew. >> jac

where president obama is free riding on security, and not moving governments forward to get other stake holding in the rest of the country. i think the president has moved that security blanket in part to change the dynamic in the region. he is also committed to rebalancing attention on asia, and he is taking military forces out should they be needed for iran and other matters. this is a very shrewd, smart move that i think the wlous is making. >> now, what we're seeing here, as well, is that they -- we just -- we're told that there's a two-minute warning. they do not want to remain there, but they're not willing to acknowledge, nor should they, given the sensitivities and the pain and suffering and the horrific loss on all sides. those 30,000 marines were exposed to, you know, grievous harm, and many lives were lost, and it didn't do what the generals had hoped for. >> that's not something they will ever acknowledge because it delegitimatizes the loss of those people. you may get a faster transition from a purely political perspective, this is what the obama administration would like.

're going into nut country. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, paranoid america is climbing out of its bunker. the near possibility that the obama administration might stop the easy sale of the scariest guns to the scariest people has aroused the slippery slope crowd. these cousins of the grassy knoll folks believe that any limit on the wide open market for guns and ammo threatens their own hardware. any reasonable action by the american people to stop the carrage is to these paranoids the first unfaltering step to mass confiscation of everything from shoth guns to daisy rifles. well, tonight we let you hear from the craziest of the crazies. my question, are the regular gun owners of this country, the people who go out and hunt in hunting season, the people who shoot skeet or simply like to pack their own bullets, regular gun enthusiasts, are they going to listen to these nut cases or joe biden when he offers proposals next week on background checks and high capacity magazines? who are the people that are going to deci
about it and said you cannot take these guantanamo terrorists to my country. in fairness, obama announced the closing of guantanamo and dick cheney said it's a horrible idea, but these are the worst of the worst, a statement that was false. 40 of the people had been cleared by the bush administration. 40 more won habeas cases. peter dick cheney was lying or did not know the facts. the obama administration did not take them on, in any event. then they want to take that group into virginia, frank wolf said don't do that, and they backed down, the obama administration backed down. then congress said you cannot take them. what he's got to do is grow a pair of big ones, but he's got to have a plan and these guys to work it. there are problems, but it's doable, and he has the power to do it. it will take a few months, but he could do it. >> there's no political value in doing it. >> it has to be moral. >> it's your legacy. >> the lady behind you. >> where my going? -- where am i going? >> sorry. i'm from the constitution project on the taniya treatment. colonel davis managed the dark
